We only had a quick peek inside to get a sense of the place so I can't say much about how it'll be for a performance. Definitely worth a peek though!

I can’t believe that this is the house of music. People were trying to convince us that it worth the millions of dollars spent. How can music be housed in this dreadful place? There is no aesthetics whatsoever (not to mention practicality). If you want...More

We went to listen to the Porto Symphony Orchesta. It was excellent. We were so impressed that Porto is not a very big city, but the Porto Sumphony was really good. The Casa da Musica architecture was very interesting.

Adverts lead you to believe that there is a lot to see in the Casa da Musica but in actual fact, unless you are part of a guided tour you see very little - just the cafe at the entrance which we thought pretty awful,...More

The architecture of the building is interesting to look at. We did not go inside though. The park next to it is also worth checking out.

Yes. You need to purchase a ticket for the excellent guided tour. Without a ticket you can't get past the lobby.

As with anywhere, it depends on availability. We booked online to make sure we weren't disappointed. It was easy to do and we picked up the tickets on arrival.

Santiago Compostela to Porto by bus (3 Replies)
We want to take the bus back to Porto after spending 3 nights in Santiago Compostela. We were told to take the Alsa bus but it drops us off at Casa da Musica. We are staying in Barrio Alto in Porto so are we close enough to walk from Casa da Musica or is it a taxi ride? Thank you for your help!

Bairro Alto in Porto?? Are you sure? Casa da Musica is centrally located in Porto, you'll get transports easily to other areas of the town.

I will be in Porto 1st to 3rd of October and would very much like to attend a classical concert at the Casa da Musica. The web site shows nothing on the schedule for October. Am I just looking too early? Meg

Casa da Musica Itinerary (3 Replies)
We have tickets to see a concert at noon at the Casa da Musica in mid-October. We'd like to spend that day in that area before and after the concert. What itinerary would you suggest? Should we have dinner at the restaurant there or should we try another place nearby. We'll most likely be on foot most of the day. Thanks so much! Alice
